​​​Covid-19 Update (02.06.2020) 

Exclamation icon

Last week Year R ,Year 1 and year 6  teachers asked you whether you intended sending your child back to school on the 8th June. I needed to collect this information so that I could risk assess and produce  an action plan to ensure your child returns  to a school which is as safe as we can make it for children and staff. I feel now as you have made your decision you need to be aware of the changes so that you will have the chance to talk to your child about the changes. .School will look and feel very different to what they are used to. but it is the only way to keep them safe. In order to maintain social distancing of 2m in classrooms, we are able to accommodate a maximum of ten children in each classroom plus a staff member. As the numbers returning are low at the moment reception and year 1  children  will be in their own room  and with either their class teacher or teaching assistant. Year six children will not necessarily  be with their own teacher or their teaching assistant. As a starting point the children in reception and year 1 will return for three days Monday to Wednesday. The children in year 6 will return full time. There will be five classrooms occupied with children, including key worker and vulnerable children, an additional classroom for isolation and the library will be used as an additional staff room to maintain staff distancing.

The classroom resources/toys/books/equipment etc   will not be available for the children to use. Every child will be  on their own table in a marked out area, with 2m between tables. They will have their own equipment on the table and a wallet of resources they will need. They will not be able to get up and move around the classroom except to go to the toilet, and when we take them outside, and we will enforce strict hand washing and sanitising throughout the day. The group your child is placed in ,will be the same group each day and there will be no mixing o f groups, even when outdoors, which will be sectioned into different zones.

If you have requested a place for your child ,  you are committing to your child attending on the specified days, and adhering to our social distancing  procedures.. This is with the exception of the key worker/vulnerable children, who can still attend  on a day to day basis  depending on parents shift patterns.

Procedures

  • Entry onto school grounds will be through the bottom school gate and parents will be asked  to wait on the marked path  or on the grassed area  outside year 3 classroom maintaining social distancing.

  • Children will be collected from this waiting area  and returned to this area at the end of the day by either the class teacher or teaching assistant. Parents and carers will not access  the playground.

  • Start and finish times for all groups will be staggered   in order to keep everyone safe.

    Key worker/ /year 6 children  8.30 -9am start  pick up as required ( please inform staff at the beginning of the day pick up time)

    Reception Children 9.15 start  2.45 finish

    Year 1 children 9.30 start  3pm finish

  • We will not expect children to be in school uniform,but ask that all clothing is changed each day..

  • We expect children to be adhering to social distancing rules outside school to avoid transmission into the school building.

  • Children won`t need to bring anything into school except  perhaps a coat ,water bottle ,a snack and a packed lunch if required. School dinners will be available for children requiring them. 

    If you have decided that your child will not be returning to school on the 8th June I respect that decision as it is yours to make .If you change your mind at a later date that is fine, but I hope you appreciate that any additional children have to be planned  for as additional groups  therefore I  will require a weeks  notice of your intention for your child to return to school the following Monday.

    Thank you for your support and understanding so far. Please remember, that we all want all of the children back in school but only when it is safe to do so. Until we have guarantees that is safe for social distancing to be relaxed, and transmission rates are low enough not to be at risk we have to be regimented  and limited in what we can offer.

    Rest assured all the staff ,governors and myself are committed to making school as safe as we can in these difficult times.
    Keep Safe

  • ​As you know we had an Isle of Wight trip booked for the end of June. As to be expected in the present climate the trip has now been cancelled by the company. All money paid in will be refunded. As soon as school receive the refund I will let you know. On the plus side the trip has been rebooked for same dates next year. Thank you for your support

​​Weston Point Community Primary School aims to nurture the all round development of every pupil. In order to achieve this, we set out to: 

To create a secure, happy, caring environment, where children and  staff can develop their full potential, intellectually, physically and spiritually, having equal opportunities and receiving an education of quality suited to their specific need.

To treat each child as an individual, recognising his/her achievement and rewarding success.

We  endeavour to foster the child's confidence in his/her abilities and enable them to adopt  skills  and strategies to become, where practicable, independent learners.

We aim to encourage the concepts of fair play and fair mindedness. 

To provide a lively, stimulating curriculum in which the children are given a firm grounding in the basic skills of literacy and numeracy and having access to the National Curriculum and its assessment. In so doing, we endeavour to extend the child's perceptive and creative skills. Our teaching of the core subjects is  directed through the outlines of the Literacy and Numeracy Strategies, and specific Science teaching.  The foundation  subjects are taught, initially, through an imaginative cross-curricular approach, becoming more subject based as the child progresses through the school, and providing as many first hand experiences as possible.

To foster a partnership between the school and the wider the community, encouraging respect for the environment. This partnership is also vital in the working together of staff, parents and governors for the benefit of the children. 

We are a school that likes to celebrate success – at every level. The life of the school is driven by enthusiasm and a desire to achieve. We aim to bring learning alive, making it exciting and stimulating. We want to give our children a thirst for learning that continues with them throughout their future school experiences and lives. An essential ingredient for this to happen is teamwork. We view education as a joint venture, involving everyone – children, parents, staff, Governors and the wider community. We hope that we will be able to depend on your co-operation and support in this partnership, hoping that together we can provide the best for every child.

​​​ 

It has been observed that the parking of motor vehicles in the vicinity of Weston Point Primary School , are parked in such a manner as to cause unnecessary obstruction to other road users and a danger to your children and their friends making their way to and from school.

Incidents of vehicles parking:

On the pavement causing an obstruction to pedestrians, which is enforceable by way of £30 fixed penalty notice.Parking on or near to a junction obstructing the line of sight, which is enforceable by way of £30 fixed penalty notice.

Parking near to the school gates on the hatch markings obstructing the line of sight, which is enforceable by way of £30 fixed penalty notice.

We are, therefore, asking for the co-operation of yourself and other users of your vehicle in this matter, in order to help in reducing the risk of accidents occurring at the location. Please, if you must drive your children to or from school park well away from the school entrance and at a location which will not cause obstruction or a danger to any other person. As soon as your child is safely in the school or car, drive away promptly and safely, bearing in mind those children who are arriving/ leaving on foot. 

Finally, we much prefer to rely upon the willing co-operation of road users to reduce the hazards described above.  Unfortunately, if that co-operation is not forthcoming, enforcement measures by fixed penalty or court proceedings may be the only alternative.

OUR SCHOOL DAY​


 

The school day begins at 9:00am and finishes at 3:00 for the Infants, and 3:05 for the Juniors.

Morning Playtimes:

At 10:30am, all of the children in school have a morning break time. Break time is between 10:30 and 10:45. Children who wish to have a morning snack, are served a selection of fruit or toast and a drink of water or milk from the hatch in the dining room. Each snack item costs 20 pence.

Lunch:

Children in Key Stage 1 have their lunch at 12:00, and Key Stage 2 begin their lunch break at 12:15. Lunch times all end at 1:00.

Afternoon Playtimes:

All children in Key Stage One have an afternoon playtime between 2:00 and 2:15. During this playtime, the children are provided with a small piece of fruit.

 

Drop-off and collection:

At the beginning and the end of the school day, parents are encouraged into the playground. This helps to build up a close relationship between home and school – we want to have good links with all parents and carers. If normal arrangements have to be altered (eg you are delayed or another person is collecting your child), please let us know. This avoids any confusion or upset. Children in Key Stage 2 can be collected by the door next to pre-school, at home time.

Getting to school:

To get to and from school, walking is definitely the best option! There are lots of benefits; it's healthier than travelling by car, it improves the safety of pedestrians and road-users, and it respects nearby residents and parking regulations. Alternatively, we have bike racks. If you do need to travel by car, we have spaces to park your vehicles, opposite the entrance to school.

 

​Punctuality It is a parent's responsibility to ensure their children arrive at school on time. Lateness can disrupt the learning of others and can result in a pupil feeling greater stress and achieving poorer outcomes.

 Every school, by law, has to register pupils twice a day; first thing in the morning at the start of the school day, and again in the afternoon session. If a pupil fails to attend or arrives late they will be marked as an absence for that session.

Research shows a close link between attendance at school and a child's achievement. Being late adds up to a loss of learning.

All time out of school affects learning and achievement for pupils. Please make sure your child arrives at school on time.Any child who arrives after registration should go to the School Office with parent/guardian .Parent/guardian will be asked to sign The Late Book .This is a  Health and Safety  matter as we require a written record of all children in school.
